The numbers are beyond my grasp/imagination. With billions and trillions being thrown about casually in conversation by the government, it is hard to grasp the enormity of the finances involved. No epic fail involved, except by our non-governing government ;)

"Interesting thought, a billionaire could give $1 million to every person in the United States / and still have plenty left over for himself."
With one billion you could make one thousand people millionaires. The richest person in the world could make only a small city worth of millionaires. If Spokane WA was had its population starting at zero dollars, the richest guy in the world could not get them all even half way to being a millionaire.
